The Redskins promoted Kyle Smith to vice president of player personnel, continuing a remake of their front office under new coach Ron Rivera. He'll oversee both the pro and college personnel departments; it's similar to what Doug Williams had been doing. Smith had served as the director of college scouting since June of 2017. The Redskins have a strong base of players under 25 years old. Smith has been with the Redskins for 10 years, starting as an intern in 2010.

The Redskins have parted ways with longtime executive Eric Schaffer, a move he confirmed via text. Schaffer spent 17 years with the organization, rising up to become their senior vice president of football operations/general counsel. He drew praise for how he handled their salary cap and contract negotations. He was expected to leave in May after failing to reach an agreement about a new role under Ron Rivera.

Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins will have to learn his second offense in as many years now that Kevin O'Connell is free to pursue other jobs —and with Scott Turner coming on board as the new coordinator per sources and multiple reports. Turner spent the last four games in 2019 as Carolina's offensive coordinator. He was the Panthers' quarterbacks coach in 2018-19 and served in the same role with Minnesota from 2014-16.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with Ryan Kerrigan as the Redskins move to a 4-3 base. Montez Sweat just finished his rookie season; they might draft Chase Young at No. 2. Kerrigan has one year left on his contract with a base salary of $11.5 million. At one point there was talk of a possible extension, but that was a different regime. As for playing in a 4-3, Kerrigan said, “I'm comfortable in it. I did it my whole life until I got here. A lot of guys have success in that.”

Bill Callahan won't return to the Redskins under new coach Ron Rivera, per source. Callahan was Washington's offensive line coach from 2015-16 and became an assistant head coach/offensive line coach from 2017-19. He took over as the interim coach after Jay Gruden was fired. The Redskins went 3-8 under Callahan.
